We will be launching the ‘Five Ways to Well-being’ as a whole school approach in the next few weeks. Our Healthy School ambassadors are preparing to lead this work in whole school assemblies and focus activities in classes. The first step is centred on ‘Connecting with others’ and we plan to have a whole school focus linked to this that the well-being ambassadors will lead. Following this, the others steps relate to physical activity, learning new skills and developing mindfulness. We are working with Selby High School who have had great success in developing their pupil well-being team and a group of their pupils will be coming into school to talk to Year 6 about this project next month The five ways have being well researched as having a positive impact on child and adult mental health; they are fully supported by a number of mental health charities and we feel this is a great approach to adopt to support our children to foster positive mental health. More information about this work will be published on Facebook and the school website.
